Bo Bichette grew up in the game of baseball.
His father, Dante Bichette, was a star who played 14 years in the majors — spending most of his time with the Colorado Rockies. In MLB’s latest Stack’d video, Bo shares what it was like growing up so involved in the sport.
"I got a head start I think in terms of knowing the game a little bit more," Bichette said in the video.
"My dad went back to coach when I was 14, and Vinny Castilla was in there — he was still coaching and I love him — Tulo, Arenado, I met all those guys when I was young so they all had a huge impact on my game."
Between his dad playing in the majors and later returning as a coach, Bichette became exposed to professional baseball at an early age. But he isn’t the only Blue Jays player who has a dad that played in the bigs.
Cavan Biggio and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s dads also played baseball, so we've been told, and Bichette said having that in common helped connect the three as they started their MLB careers together.
When it comes to Vlady in particular, Bichette described him as "a kid having fun playing in the big leagues."
"I think that’s really powerful to have somebody around that is just always having fun, always having things in perspective," he said. "Me and him have a good relationship, a good working relationship as well so it’s been fun to be around him."
While Bichette is known as a team-player and for his skills on the field, he’s also known for his flawless head of hair.

But, the 23-year-old said he actually doesn’t have a secret to the “Bo flow.”
“There’s no secret. I don’t really do anything abnormal to it… I wake up and I shower and I come to the field.”
Bichette is now in his third season in the majors, putting up 26 homers and 98 RBI this season. He holds a career .297 batting average and a .341 OBP.
Those stats are definitely a lot more impressive than his ability to draw a blue jay. A for effort though, Bo.
